In the GUI, select the last tab that is called “Testing”.
Then select the only option, the “Testing Tool”.
Then for translation testing, select the XLT tab.
Then fill in the “blanks”.
1st, it will ask you to provide the name of the translation file you wish to test.
2nd, provide a test message. You can save a message through the SMAT tool to a file.
3rd, I select “Show Field Names” and “Leak Detection”. Play with the “Detail Level” drop down. I usually start with level 2.
4th, if you used SMAT to save the test message, select the “length encoded” option.
You can use the “Save Options” section to save the results to a file.
I usually don’t use the “Save Options” and just look at the results of the translation in the large “Result” box at the bottom.
Click the “Run Command” button and it will run the test message thru the translation file and then show you the results.
Just “play” with it some and you will see it is fairly easy to use the tool. 🙂
Hope this helps or ask one of your Engineers to give you a brief overview.
Should not take more than 5-10 minutes.
